Proud parents, Ryan and Jen holding baby who? We couldn't decide on the name. Finally we decided later the next week on Sept. 22 that his name would be Matthew Ryan. See the next post for details on the name and birth experience. Sorry this blog is messed up. I'm still figuring it all out. Hope you like all of the pictures!
Yeah! What a team! Here's mommy, Matthew, Dr. Hardiman and the wonderful nurse that helped me the whole time. She was a crack up. I wish I could remember her name.
Mommy and Matthew......he finally lets out a big howler to get his lungs going. What a glorious sound when you know they're breathing! This was truly one of the only big screams he let out! He's a pretty content little guy. Phew! Mommy made it through the delivery.
Smiles all around:)
Where am I? What's going on? Who are you strange people? Where's the party?
"What a very lucky boy!" exclaimed Dr. Hardiman. When Matthew was born he came out with the cord showing a big, but loose knot! Wow! Another miracle in this birth story:) Thank you! Our prayers were answered in so many ways!!!!!!!!
Drum roll............he weighs in at a whopping 6 lbs. 3.6 oz. and measured 19 inches long. What a peanut! We thought he'd be at least 7 lbs. or more but hey, we'll take it! Easier for mommy:)
